Thursday Re-Do: Ted Ludwig with Rodney Block

UPDATE: The storms on Tuesday knocked the power out at the Afterthought, which threw a wrench in the Mardi Gras celebration. They're going to try again tonight.

TED LUDWIG TRIO WITH RODNEY BLOCK
8 p.m., the Afterthought. $7.

If you can't muster up the nerve to call in sick the rest of the week (hey, there's definitely something going 'round) and truck it down to NOLA, the Afterthought is the closest you'll come to the Crescent City's charms (if not its decadence) on Fat Tuesday. The finest players in the city's jazz scene come together for a special performance. Ted Ludwig, a New Orleans native, leads his trio with brilliant seven-string guitar work. Joe Cripps plays stand-up bass and Brian Brown holds it down on drums. For an added dimension to the Afterthought regulars, renowned trumpeter Rodney Block provides a smooth accompanying kick. Expect short solo sets from the Ted Ludwig Trio and Block, but most of the night belongs to collaboration. Look for beads flying, Abita Beer specials, party favors and more.
